Every day brings something new as children aged 4 to 10 years old guide daily activities with their interests and curiosities.

Days are filled with wonder as children explore, build and play in Scanlon Creek’s forests, meadows and wetlands. They experience hands-on and child-directed learning that is unhurried and supported as we explore the natural world together. 

Will we examine animal tracks? Explore the critters in the pond? Investigate insects in the meadow? Each week is a new adventure!

Give your child a new adventure this summer with the freedom to explore and learn about the natural world. Real life – Real Learning – Real Connections.
